2.6 – All the Kids Are Growing

MoMo really likes the telescope. He uses it constantly. I think he’s going to be an astronaut when he’s older. I hope he conquers the stars!

Claire and LuLu really like each other’s company. They love playing tag together, and go on till late at night, so I have to pretty much force them to go to bed.

I grew up a few days after I managed to get a promotion. It was a relief, getting a midlife crisis and also the watcher allowing me to pretty much shave my head. Of course, I kept my beard.

I liked my new haircut a lot. I got a grey and black tiger striped shirt to go with it, keeping my rebel spike collar, as well. I thought I looked pretty handsome, and the watcher agreed.

DD became a young adult a few months later, and he decided he’d be a chef.

“I really think this is the right path for me, Dad. My passions lie in painting and playing the guitar, but you know I don’t mind cooking while you’re away at work. I don’t mind cooking for a living, that’s what I’ve been doing since I turned 13, isn’t it?” DD asked me one day, deciding to confront me head on.

I sighed, “DD, it’s not that. Cooking can cause fire if you get distracted, like your sister LaLa does sometimes. I know you won’t get distracted, just… be careful, alright, son?”

“Okay, Dad. I get it. I’ll be careful. I promise,” DD smiled and went back to playing the guitar.

I was worried about the kid. Sure, he was a young adult now, at 21, but he was still my child. He was my oldest. I really hoped he’d turn out alright.


The rest of my children grew up fast after that.

CoCo…

Momo…

Thea… And even if she wasn’t biologically related, I watched her grow up since she was just a baby, so that made me believe she was as much as my child as the rest of them… right?

A lot of fighting happened. I fought with Thea, and actually set her on fire once. The watcher was HORRIFIED and chastised me in her mind, because of it.

MoMo also broke up with her not long after he grew up. They didn’t seem to see eye-to-eye anymore. I ended up fighting with CoCo once, too. My relationship with my kids was falling.

LuLu became a teen, and as LuLu did, so did Claire.

The last teenagers, I realized with shock one day. After those two became young adults, there would be no more kids in the house for a while.

At least… that’s what I had thought…

2.5 – Birthdays and Prom Again!

Thea
CoCo

I said a few of my kids were growing up, yes? Well, what I actually meant, was just CoCo and then also Thea. I think CoCo grew up to be a bit handsome, like his father. He looks a lot like me.

That night we had a paranormal event. It was a floating bathtub. How unusual.

A few months later, TT and ChuChu grew up, and I let TT come home, as well as MoMo and LaLa.

ChuChu
TT

TT and ChuChu didn’t make it to prom, but the other kids did. I bet it had to do with them growing up into teens that day.

DD got in three fights, got denied by a dance, and then became a romantic interest with Bertha, whoever that is. MoMo ended up becoming romantic interests with Thea, which was a surprise to all of us, and he got in three fights as well. LaLa got in two fights, got denied for a dance, and also had a new romantic interest named Rickey. Thea got in a fight and became romantic interests with MoMo (obviously). CoCo got into three fights, became Prom King, and became romantic interests with a girl named Leila.

LuLu
Claire

Speaking of the kids, this is LuLu and Claire. They’re my youngest children.

Can you guess what I’m doing the zombie here? I’m setting her on fire!

2.2 – Now

As of right now, I have 6 of my 8 children, and also Thea, of course… but she doesn’t count. Manisha and I had another son. I named him CoCo.

CoCo Clearwater

DD had his next big birthday when he turned 5.

DD Clearwater

You might not be able to see it well in the picture, but he ended up with his mother’s hair, highlights included, that she got not long after we started dating… but that wasn’t going to last long.

Hans and River Tide

Manisha and I ended up in a huge fight afterwards. I won, of course… but that was the last straw for me.

If she wasn’t going to accept me sleeping around, then I didn’t need her.

A few, long months later, Magic Mint and River Tide both had twins, and I was forced to take them home.

All four kids have since had their big 1st and big 2nd birthday.

TT Clearwater (Toddler – Magic Mint’s)
TT Clearwater (Child)
MoMo Clearwater (Toddler – River Tide’s)
MoMo Clearwater (Child)
ChuChu Clearwater (Toddler – River Tide’s)
ChuChu Clearwater (Child)
LaLa Clearwater (Toddler – Magic Mint’s)
LaLa Clearwater (Child)

… and, just for the heck of it, I’ll let you see Thea, even if she’s not my kin.

Thea

Thea was definitely the most interesting looking. Freckles, pink hair, white eyes, pale skin, pointy ears. It was weird.

She’s an elf.

… What?

Thea. She’s the last of the elves. You have to raise her right, and she will be a queen.

I don’t understand…

You will at some point, I promise. Just make sure she turns out alright.

Alright… I’ll try, Watcher.


AUGH!

I AM SO GROUNDING TT FOR STEALING LALA’s CANDY!

… Is that all?

… And then I’ll reward her with a new dollhouse.

Sigh…


Alright, small question… should I include Thea in the heir poll for this gen?

Keep in mind, I have made her not related to the family, therefore she COULD end up a spouse of one of the kids. Either way, I just wanted to ask this question, mostly because I’m curious about it.
